Pseudonymous Bosch Bad Luck CoverPseudonymous Bosch is the author of the New York Times bestselling Secret series and he will be discussing his newest book, Bad Luck.

The plot thickens in the brilliant sequel to Bad Magic! At Earth Ranch, things can get a little magical (some might say strange). Intrepid readers will discover a runaway boy, fishy cruise ship, strange cave paintings, dragon-like footprints, and other mysteries that Clay and his friends need to solve. Danger, adventure, mischief, mystery, llamas, and a delightfully irreverent and hilarious narrator make bestselling author Pseudonymous Bosch's anticipated new novel irresistible.

Books will be sold on site by A Whale of a Tale Bookshoppe.
